Manchester United can have Romelu Lukaku if they offer £65 million. It's probably a fair price for him, going by current rates, but it's worth remembering that Lukaku has already played 300 games and probably only has a few more seasons before his body gives up on him. It's not many players who can play at the top for very long, anymore. You can read about that in the Mirror.

In the Manchester Evening News, Louis van Gaal says he may be interested in signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but it there is a concern over his age. Well, there's a concern over Van Gaal's competence but it hasn't stopped United paying him every month.

On ESPNFC, Manchester United's ex-winger Luis Nani says that Van Gaal treated the players like kids. Which is lucky, I suppose, as the only players who are still excited to play for him at United are kids.

Do you want to feel depressed? Jose Mourinho is the man to take over from Van Gaal, but with Van Gaal still involved in transfer planning for the summer, there's still a chance the limpet will remain for another season yet. That's in the Telegraph.

Teddy Sheringham says that Harry Kane should consider joining United. It would be hard for an Arsenal fan to make such a move, but it's still a better choice than being managed by Arsene Wenger. You can read Sheringham's consonants and vowels here, in the Mail.
